I Am Captain America

With the new Captain America movie coming out soon, Marvel is highlighting old ‘wingtips’ on several Marvel comic covers with a a variant series of “I am Captain America” drawings by several different artists. While I love a lot of the artists and have followed many of their careers since I was a kid (Quesada in partcular), one stood out to me.

Skottie Young is a relatively new name (to me anyways; I grew up with Jim Lee drawing X-Men and Todd Macfarlane still, principly, drawing comic books) but you gotta hand it to him on style.

This could be an one of those inspirational posters, at the bottom it should say... "Super Soldier : You don't need a serum to be one."

Head over to Hero Worship at the LA Times to check out the full article and more covers.

      If you haven’t read it, I would HIGHLY recommend reading Marvel’s Civil War.
